The Open Data Infrastructure for Social Science and Economic Innovations (ODISSEI) equips social scientists in the Netherlands with the data, tools, and skills that are necessary to answer groundbreaking questions for scientific and policy making purposes. With a variety of use cases to pick from, we aim at engaging in a discussion with other Research data infrastructures to identify synergies but also challenges ahead.
